Marine Microalgae Single Species Feeds for Aquaculture
In contrast to traditional practice, we produce only whole-cell, whole food microalgae feeds and enrichment products from marine algae using proprietary processes. Maximum rotifer nutrition is achieved from intact whole microalgae cells which provide maximum nourishment to your fish.
Reed Mariculture’s inland aquaculture RAS farm produces microalgae and zooplankton for healthy, high-quality and economical production at your fish, bivalve & shrimp hatcheries.
- Phototrophically grown
- Whole-cell algae (non-viable but intact)
- Full nutritional value with no need to hydrate
- Biosecure, pathogen-free and clean
- Easy to use
- Always available
- The algae you want for hatchery success!
Reed Mariculture produces an assortment of whole-cell, whole food single species feeds for specific aquaculture applications. Instant Algae® products are used in hatcheries in 90 countries around the world for fish, shrimp, and shellfish larviculture, as well as public aquariums and hobbyist reef tanks.
